I think I screamed in the car when La Belle Elaine’s Bridal Salon in Seattle, Washington called me to announce that my Queen Earrings featured at the salon made the cover of Seattle Bride Magazine, 2011. What a great day!!
We are so pleased to have our satin bridal headband on oval filigree featured on the cover of Phoenix Bride and Groom Magazine Spring 2011! Please view our selection of sating headband styles under Accents.
October 19th, 2010, Renee Pawele had the once in a lifetime opportunity to design some of the runway pieces for the fabulous Katerina Boccii gown designer. Renee worked with Katerina to design one of a kind upscale bridal jewelry and headpieces using Swarovski rhinestones, feathers and vintage nets to complement the romantic gowns that were presented to bridal buyers from all over the country. Here are a few of the photos courtesy of Shawn Punch Fashion Photography.
We are so pleased to have our Signature Accent featured in the Inside Wedding Magazine editorial in Spring 2010!
We are so proud of the beautiful Jessica Jessie who wore our custom Miss USA Bracelet in this years Ms. Olympia Swimsuit Competition. Jessica had been inspired by seeing the 2010 Miss USA contest winner, Rima Fakih wearing a similar version of the bracelet. Jessica’s beautiful tan skin was complimented perfectly with the dazzling Swarovski crystal bracelet customized with yellow and clear stones, perfectly matched to her striking yellow swimsuit. You can see Jessica wearing our Miss USA Bracelet in our “photos” section here on Facebook, or become a fan of Jessica Jessie on Facebook, as she is a rising star!
Take a peak at what The Orange County Register had to say about Something Green.
Congratulations to Rima Fakih, our newest Miss USA! We are so honored she chose to wear a custom bracelet of handwoven Swarovski crystals and rhinestones by Renee Pawele Bride for the evening gown competition, and was crowned wearing it! We wish her a fabulous year as reigning Miss USA, and success in her future plans.

I’ve had the pleasure of styling many fabulous brides for over a decade designing bridal accessories. I am thrilled to begin sharing my styling tips with Savvy Scoop brides-to-be each month. My first column includes my top tips for selecting the accessories that best suite you. Congratulations, your wedding day will be amazing!
Timing — Surprise! Some accessories also require advance ordering, especially for custom-made or altered items, such as veils, jewelry and headpieces. Allow 6-8 weeks to be sure your accessories arrive on time and avoid rush charges. Add extra time if you would like your veil and headpiece available for hair trials or all of your accessories for pre-wedding photos.
Beyond Bridal — Jewelry that can be worn beyond your wedding day to dress up jeans, or hair accessories that can be the finishing touch on a big night out, are a better value than cheap costume jewelry. Also look for pieces that are made from high quality materials by designers with a solid reputation if you want to ensure that you can pass your accessories down to your own future generations.
Too Sparkle or Not to Sparkle — Rhinestones or pearls or crystals, oh my! How can a girl choose? Rhinestones of course add the most sparkle and are just right for evening weddings, earrings and hair accessories that draw attention to your face, and brides who just love bling. Crystals bring a little brightening to any piece, especially at afternoon weddings when they catch the sunlight. Pearls soften a look and keep it classic. Pieces with combinations of all three can create the perfect balance of sparkle and softness.
Skip Off the Shelf — For your accessories that is! While a custom-designed wedding dress is outside the realm of many brides, customized jewelry, hair accessories and veiling are more accessible. In fact, many of our favorite Renee Pawele pieces were inspired by the design direction of particular blushing brides!
